administrative collateral estoppel


administrative collateral estoppel
Principles of this estoppel doctrine apply when agency is acting in a judicial capacity and resolves disputed issues of fact properly before it which parties have had adequate opportunity to litigate; threshold inquiry is whether earlier proceeding is essential equivalent of judicial proceeding. City Wide Learning Center, Inc. v. William C. Smith & Co., Inc., D.C.App., 488 A.2d 1310, 1313
